The place is small and there is often a line to enter. The big ass pankake was not as big as we thought and it was served with almost no toppings. The service was very friendly.

Ha! Noted! We will have to up our pancake game! That's a first :) Glad you enjoyed the service.

Our clubhouse sandwich was very sloppy and only had 2 slices of bread. When I mentioned to the server that it should have 3 she said, "not this one." The bacon with a couple of our dishes was under cooked. Found a hair in the...fries which may have come from one of the cooks' long locks. The "BIG ASS PANCAKE " advertised as 1 giant pancake that covers the whole plate, must have shrunk. Maybe we were expecting too much after reading other reviews. All together, a very underwhelming experience.More

Sorry to hear that we did not meet your expectations. And so sorry about the hair! I hope that you mentioned it to the staff as they would have immediately made you a new meal. We appreciate your patience and understanding with us as we...More

We visited here for brunch and were very impressed with the food. It's a busy place right on the highway at Creekside. The service was excellent and our meals were delicious - the bacon is the best I've had. This is breakfast stop that is...worth getting to. Perfect for a morning meal.More

With so many places across the tourist destinations in BC trying to be different and a little out there/fancy with their menus, it was a god send to find this traditional no messing diner. Their menu is varied and offers a good range of breakfast...foods. We had the chocolate chip big ass pancake and it was ace! Definitely recommend. All at a decent price.More

Stopped in yesterday after a morning of adventuring. A table was quickly found for us and all 6 of us enjoyed our 6 different choices. Can't ask for more than that.

We choose the place for breakfast and it was worth it! Food was tasty, good menu options and great portions. Service was good too. We ordered the blueberry pancake and it was amazing (and so big)!

I must have eaten at a different place than everyone else. We ate here based on a recommendation for breakfast. We arrived just after they stopped the breakfast menu so we had lunch. The hamburgers were lukewarm and the mushrooms looked and tasted slimy. The...poutine was barely lukewarm so that cheese curds hadn't melted. The club sandwich and fries were acceptable. We were there in September and this was the only place that we went to where masks were not worn by servers (hotel, stores, restaurants) At the time, there was no mandatory mask policy in place. So Southside wasn't offside, but not operating out of an abundance of caution either. Based on the lunch experience, I'm not that eager to try the breakfast there.More

We love this local spot! As a 25 plus year resident, I have been eating here for years. Today we stopped in for some Happy Hour cheer. I had Wings, my wife had the & Layer Dip. The Wings are So Good! The 7 Layer...Dip was served Hot and was very tasty. We washed all down with the house lager and Tightrope Pinot Gris....Side note: Tightrope makes killer wine!!! Looking forward to our next Apres/Happy HourMore

Not sure about gluten free. Their menu is available online. You can google Southside Diner Whistler to see their menu.
